Tomorrow is July 4!

Celebrate Independence Day in the neighborhood - come out to Delmas between Fuller and Atlanta in the evening. Kids' games begin around 7 pm, then FREE ICE CREAM after 8 pm! Bring a blanket and sit in the street to enjoy the fireworks (usually around 9:30). The Word of Faith Church will have chicken, hot dogs and drinks for sale (yum) beginning around 6 pm. Thanks to all the North Willow Glen volunteers for helping put on this festival again this year!

Dead roses and ice cream? July 10

"Want to do something different this summer to help your community and get a free ice cream as a reward? The Heritage Rose Garden needs volunteers to snip all the dead roses in order to promote more bloom. We’re hoping you will help us on Tuesday, July 10, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, with a sweet payoff at the end. No experience necessary. Volunteer experts will show you how. Bring your own clippers, or borrow one from the staff. It will be an enjoyable and rewarding way to spend a summer evening. The San Jose Heritage Rose Garden is located on Taylor Street, at Spring Street, just east of Coleman Avenue. For more information, and to sign up, contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Lucy Perez, at 408-298-7657 or email lperez@grpg.org"
